Lewis Hamilton organized a farewell dinner for Sebastian Vettel on Thursday in Abu Dhabi, which was attended by all 20 F1 drivers.

Sebastian Vettel is leaving Formula 1 after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix on Sunday. To mark this occasion, and to pay respect to the four-time champion, Lewis Hamilton organized a farewell dinner on Thursday, which was attended by all 20 F1 drivers.

Afterwards, Lewis posted a picture of himself with Seb, along with a touching tribute.

“We’ve come a long way as drivers and continue to grow as men,” the Briton wrote.

“Despite whatever may happen on the track we grow and become better each day.

“Us all coming together to celebrate life and Seb’s amazing career in F1 is truly a night I’ll never forget.”

The fact that Lewis was the person responsible for organizing the gathering was confirmed by GPDA chairman and former F1 driver Alex Wurz.

“Thanks Lewis Hamilton to initiate, and thanks all GPDA members to turn up to show respect to one of the greatest, to one of our directors, and ultimately to our sport [which Sebastian Vettel loves so much],” wrote Wurz on social media.

It was also reported that Lewis picked up the bill for the dinner, although the £140,000 receipt which has been making the rounds on social media, has been confirmed as fake.
